Great studies

My gr'daughter loves these studies . They are very pertinent to her life as a 14yo. Tha ks!

Very Timely

My 4th grader has had a difficult year navigating friendships. I'm excited to work through this study with her this summer to gear up for next school year.

Such a needed study

I love the concept of "navigating" friendships. I wish I had a study like this when I was a kid.


Could use more bible based but still a great study in itself

Love these Bible Studies!

We have done 5 of Not Consumed Bible studies and we have enjoyed them as a family with 5 boys (ages 1-9) and one girl (age 13).

So helpful!!

I chose this study after my 7 year old daughter began having friendship issues at church. This study has been wonderful in helping my daughter know how to handle the unkindness of friends, the movement of friends from the inner to outer circle and how to BE the friend that God wants HER to be through it all. It has reminded me of the treasure I have in my inner and outer circle of friends. I love how it teaches that even Jesus is our friend but with the highest of authority. This study does a great job of teaching people of all ages how to be a true friend! Thanks for challenging us as we navigate through life and relationships!

Great Family Study!

I am thoroughly pleased with how well this study has gone for my children 5-17. I love how it’s customized by age group and how the parent guide is a Bible study for me as well. Friendship was an important topic we wanted to tackle. Having a study that puts Jesus first is absolutely wonderful.

Great conversation-starter

This was a great opportunity for our family to get into the Word together and talk about how to seek out and manage friendships in a Biblical way. I appreciated the discussion on inner vs. outer circle of friends and setting boundaries. We are thankful for this ministry!

An excellent voyage into the sea of friendship

I love how Kim finds a theme or topic and relates it well with the subject at hand. In this case, this book is a beautiful journey into what friendship is and is not and uses the allegory of a ship. It has 20 lessons from God as your Captain, the First Mates (the parents, I appreciate this lesson), the second in command (siblings or cousins), and shipmates (friends) as inner circle and outer circle. It goes deep into what it means to be a biblical friend for someone else, and what it looks to have biblical friends in a very practical way. At the end, she writes a simple beautiful diagram with all the truths your kid learns for a quick read and review for the future.
